MusiciansFriend had a great sale on these G&G cases and I was really excited when I received my order. However, the case turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, it's still a beautiful, sturdy and protective case. But as a couple of other reviewers have noted, attention to detail - the hallmark of a great manufacturing company, American or otherwise - is just not there.

First, and immediately most noticeable, the case is bigger. I know this because I own an immaculate 2004 tweed G&G case. This new case, a brown tolex model, is almost a half inch thicker. Consequently, it is also slightly heavier.

Second, the lock and clasp fittings look like cheap imitations compared to the 2004 case. On closer inspection, the locks on the 2004 model have "Cheney England" marks inside. The new ones are unmarked. I've since found that Cheney Locks of England no longer exists.

Third, and most troubling, is the sloppy detail work. Mine is not as bad as a few reviewers here have described, but still does not bear close inspection. This is a sad development for an iconic American manufacturer much loved and a big part of Fender's history making legacy.

I would still recommend these G&G cases over the Vietnam made cases that Fender sells under its Pro Series line. But only at the sale prices that MusiciansFriend has made them available.

G&G Fender Cases - Ghosts of Quality Long Past

Maybe in its heyday these were THE cases to have. I bought one of their nice looking Fender branded tweed cases to protect a nice Strat I am lucky to own, and was shocked at the poor workmanship (studs not hammered in all the way, crooked name plates, pieces bent out of shape, etc.,).
I contacted G&G via email to let them know of my concerns regarding the poor quality. (I offered them an "out" thinking perhaps my case had been assebled poorly by Fender as a partner.) I heard nothing from them for weeks.When they finally responded, their correspondence was NOT very well written, in terms of professionalism, tone of customer service, or grammar; I felt like I was getting mobile texts from a teenage girl.I was basically asked to prove and provide photographic evidence. I did so gladly.Without any apology, G&G offered to replace my case, but they insisted that I pay for boxing it up and shipping it across the country to them. These are quite large and heavy pieces and it's not worth my time and money, as a mere average consumer, to ship it at a cost much higher than what a large company can afford to do. I suspect that they know this very well.It's a shame really that a USA company is taking this approach to "quality control" and customer satisfaction. Cheaper foreign imports are unfortunately improving their quality (and customer relations) to the point where it's hard to argue "Buy USA," especially if the quality of product and sevice is as poor as I've experienced. I recently bought some imported German guitar strings and the owner himself corresponded with me when I had a few break on me - sending me replacements for free all the way from Europe.This classic company may not last much longer if this is the trend. Very sad.

            This is a really nice case; however, I had to send it back because my Fender Strat with a 70's head stock did not fit the case. The head stock extended over the padding on the top of the case. Had to go with the PRO case which is a good case but not as nice as this one.

              The Strat case is great for my guitar and pretty lite, but when I want to take my kitty, she does not fit very well and the case is difficult to close. Once I did get it closed she really loved the soft velvet lining.

                  Comments about Fender Strat/Tele Hardshell Case:

                  I bought a Fender American Special Tele which comes with a gig bag. Being a gigging musician I am a stickler for hard shell cases. I looked at a lot of different cases but always leaned towards the case that fender uses themselves. Already owning a Strat with a hardshell case I decided to go with a different color case for my Tele and I am glad I did. These cases are so well put together and so spacious. Love the look both inside and out. I would highly recommend these for anyone looking for a good case to carry that fender they love so much!

                  While it looks original and gives you a vintage vibe, there are newer better cases to protect your guitar. I've had two of these, and they both scratch and ding without much effort. The "Tolex" that's used on these is soft and cheap, and nothing like what's on the old Fender cases or Fender amps. Save your money on these and get a good modern case that does what a case is supposed to do, protect your guitar.
